Discussion forum for the 2011 Prague Marathon
You're never alone Jeremy but there are stages where its pretty thin most specifically the long straight drag from the final bridge crossing to around the 40km stretch.
I would definintely take the music player along to help out.
Never been too much wind on all my countless training runs up and down the river. Never say never of course. The heat can be a real problem though so fingers crossed for cool and overcast.
A bit long range but weather looks ok
Ben perhaps you could help me - I'm staying at Antik Hotel, Dlouha 22, Praha 1 - on google it looks to me only 1.5-2 Km from there to the expo so I was planning a relaxed stroll there and back on Saturday(got all day). Is the distance about right or am I way off? Plan to walk to the start on Sunday - looking forward to it now (and also not!!)

Ideal hotel for the start / finish area. Bit of a trek up to the Expo and not through the nicest parts of town either. Would suggest taking public transport to and from the expo and saving your Saturday walk for the nice parts of town - Old town // Charles Bridge // Malostrana
i'd agree with that.
it is possible to walk but not a nice route so better to take the tram a few stops and you can clock up a few leisurely km doing some sightseeing later.
Good fun as always!! Cramped up a bit from 35 - 38km but pulled through and got a PB by 22minutes so that can't be bad. Of course this morning I'd struggle to walk 42m let along run 42km. From hero to zero in one fell swoop.
Well done to all who did this - see you again next year?!!
Just stumbled on this board. Yes - going to go this year 2012. Sounds spectacular!
